WHY CHILDREN ARE TAUGHT HISTORY IN SCHOOLS – ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT

Knowledge of these events will create an understanding of how and why the modern world has become what it is today, and inspire a deeper curiosity for learning about how societies and people’s lives have changed as time has passed.
This guide consistently keeps the goals of the new national curriculum in focus, as it has been put together with this government aim in mind.
